Best. Headline. Ever.

This has nothing to do with science, but this has to be the best headline ever:

British dwarf’s penis gets stuck to hoover

Original story here.

Even better, the dwarf in question goes by the stage name Captain Dan the Demon Dwarf. I don’t think there’s anything to add here.

    As an Edinburgh resident, I have to point out that as Fringe shows go, that’s not particularly unusual…

    Meh. Possibly made up to publicise the Circus’ show in Edinburgh this year – they were apparently emailing the media with offers of interviews with the performer in question well before the story hit the wires.

    Even so, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great headline…

    Sucks for the little guy.

    “It was the most embarrassing moment of my life when I got wheeled into a packed AE with a vacuum attached to me,”

    Right, because the circus act as rehearsed was quite dignified.

    Captain Dan: “I’m not Happy.”
    Reporter: “Well which one are you then?”
    Captain Dan: (mumbles)”Changin’ my name to Dirt Devil”

    Personally, I preferred the headline on The Register: “Dwarf superglues todger to hoover”.

    It sounds like something out of an AliG show to me…

    A friend of mine alerted me to another good headline: “Inebriated Psychopath Masturbates in Sauna”.
